Ascent Trip Report

Started out from bunny flats weather was windy with light snow.
By the time we reached Lake Helen the winds were 40+
couldn't see anything, so we waited it out for about 20 min and then decided it wasn't safe enough to attempt going any farther.
Went back to the trucks drove into town and had a few adult beverages.
